Can not see/connect to 5g band

I have a Intel Centrino wireless N 2230. I can not connect or see my 5g band on my dual band router. I went into Device Manager and found the Network adapter. I checked the advanced tab and there is no option for 802.11n Channel Width for band 5ghz. It doesnt exist. How do I get it installed? I think this is what is keeping the computer from looking for the 5g band. I have downloaded and installed the newest drivers (15.11.0.7) and I still dont have it.

Centrino 2230 does not have 5 GHz capability according to Intel: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/wireless-products/wireless-product-selection-guide.html Intel® Wireless Product Selection Guide

You can purchase Intel 7260AC or Intel Centrino 6235to get the 5 Ghz capability.

I have the Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260 and connected to 5 Ghz:
